if you've seen the words of governor chris christie. he had some high praise for the president. does that have any impact, a republican governor, and one who is quite popular within the party and certainly is quite colorful. does that have any impact at all on the race at this point? >> look. people understand that chris christie's job is to try to protect the lives, the families, and the property of the people of new jersey, and to try to turn around what's happened and get started in a recovery mode as fast as they can, and that one of the resources is the federal government. the federal government has a large program, particularly in the next few weeks, and so any governor of either party should treat the president with respect, and i can tell you when we dealt with bp oil spill and this administration, if we thought the administration or the government was not doing something well, we didn't go out and say it on television. we took it up with them quietly and said look, we think this is a problem. we think this needs to be changed. so it would be really bad governance for any gov

someone they can respond, vigorously and robustly to, to this type of tragedy. and with chris christie, vouching for president obama, i would think that that would have some sort of effect on, perhaps florida voters. >> you know what else, i hope i haven't, mentioned new orleans on the show this week. i think when the way you see politicians and your local leaders, even media, wall to wall coverage. to me all of this living through this for a second time is proof of how katrina changed the nation's psychology when it comes to storms. >> yes. >> how many lessons have been learned, dark days along the gulf coast in '05. see it playing out. closest thing to katrina since '05. you are seeing the country changed after the storm, even response on every level has changed as well. interesting to watch, yet again for sure. >> yeah. >> coming up next, images are almost too much for adults to comprehend. for children, the pictures from sandy could be downright heartbreaking and confusing. >> we'll show you what one familiar fuzzy face is doing to help them understand. ♪ we have all been assault
the president of the united states as he tours with chris christie today? >> i think they want to hear specific things about how they're going to get help and how soon it's going to come. when people think about the federal government and fema and the bureaucracy i think it's daunting. people are worried it's going to be red tape and programs that are not going to essentially solve their needs in the short term. you know, the short-term needs people have here is basically to get the debris away from their homes to secure structures to make it safer. there are still thousands of people in shelters who are going to be running out of food and supplies and those kinds of places up and down the coast and further inland. power, of course, is out to 60% of the entire state. so before -- once you get those things re-established, then you can begin to start rebuilding and really getting your foot -- your feet back on the ground here. it's going to take a while. i think people are encouraged that the president is coming. it certainly shows that he's concerned about what's happened here. but as always, i

jersey governor chris christie in the aftermath of the storm. how is the white house handling those complaints? >> well, martin, good afternoon. the white house publicly is saying they're not going to comment on the complaints or the president's visit really, what it could mean politically, because they say this is not a time for politics. i can tell you privately though that both democrats and republicans were a little bit surprised by governor christie's tone yesterday. they said he could have thanked the president, but he was really effusive about it. i want to make the important point i spoke to one of my republican sources who lived in the areas that was battered by sandy and he said, look, it is possible that governor christie is just very thankful for the president being there because there are so many people who are suffering. having said that, we are less than a week out from election day, so, of course, the visit will be viewed through a political lens. of course, governor christie presides over a blue state. he's up for re-election next year and, of course, there are rumb
is that new jersey governor chris christy is now saying that people in the affected areas of new jersey, people affected by hurricane sandy can now vote electronically. they can vote by e-mail and they can vote by fax. it is an interesting turn. joe, what are you finding out about this? >> well, it's a very interesting turn, don. as you said, in response to the super storm, the governor has issued a directive. this is for misplaced voters that can submit ballot applications by e-mail or by fax to the county clerk. the clerk sends them a ballot and then they have to return that ballot by about 8:00 p.m. on tuesday. it sounds highly unusual. to some, it may sound off the wall. but the fact of the matter is, in an emergency situation, there is some precedent for it. the united states actually has a program for military and overseas voters to basically do very similar things. so chris christie is taking a page from that pramt aogram and trying to find out how new jersey voters are not disenfranchised. >> joe, i understand it's not just for the people who have been affected by the super stor
chris christie. the governor surprised many people today when he called the president and i quote outstanding and incredibly supportive. words he probably wouldn't have used at the heart of an election battle last week. governor chris christie joins me from the state emergency command center. governor, thank you for joining me. i watched these extraordinary scenes over new jersey today. really quite unprecedented. i've never seen anything quite like it. have you ever seen anything like this in your lifetime? >> no, i haven't. in fact, piers, today i toured the jersey coastline both by helicopter, and i landed in two spots on the jersey shore. and i can tell you that i have never seen devastation like this in my life. not here in new jersey. you see sights like the seaside heights boardwalk, where the program "the jersey shore" is filmed, the boardwalk is gone. it is gone. amusement rides, a roller coaster, a log flume, in the ocean. it's incredible. homes destroyed. it's an awful thing. >> new jersey people are known for their resilience. they're tough people. you yourself are a t

christie and the president. let me tell you, is chris christie the governor who was supporting mitt romney or not? , a little confused. >> well, remember that he is running for reelection in 2013 in new jersey, which has not voted for republican for president in over 20 years. so it's good politics for him, and, frankly, so far he is very pleased with of the federal government has been responding to his requests for aid and assistance. 62 percent of new jersey, i lived in new jersey, is without power. that is a lot of angry potential voters if he does not get something done. so i think he is putting policy and his own politics temporarily ahead of mitt romney's. gerri: fascinating to watch, and i could not help but think maybe romney will have some kind of response down the line to governor christie. to you. you said that politicking never really ended. the conventional restaurant is that all politics ceased during the storm. you said, no. >> it didn't really. you had romney having events collecting, donated goods for those hurricane victims. that is politicking. he is showing a fall faced
of their constituents. governor chris christie seemed to suggest he wasn't taking the election into consideration. >> is there any possibility that governor romney may go to new jersey to tour some of the damage with you? >> i have no idea. nor am i the least bit concerned or interested. >> right. >> i've got a job to do here in new jersey that's much bigger than presidential politics and i could care less about any of that stuff. the president was great last night. he said he would get it done. at 2:00 a.m. i got a call from fema to answer a couple of final questions and he signed the declaration this morning. i have to give the president great credit, he's been on the phone with me three times in the last 24 hours and anything that i've asked for he's gotten to me. i thank the president publicly for that. he's done as far as i'm concerned a great job for new jersey. >> new york city mayor michael bloomberg last night canceled tomorrow's new york city marathon after the critics said the resources were needed elsewhere, after i tweeted about it. i can't help but think that pushed him over the edg
